Pensions and Retirement Planning

Retirement is changing, some choose to set up a new business, others pursue working part-time or spend more time with the grandchildren. Whatever your plans for retirement, it is what you make of it. We are here to help you plan for the unique vision you have with expert pensions and retirement planning advice.

  • Understand how much money you’ll need to achieve your retirement lifestyle

Nearly Retired

Pensions are far more flexible than they have ever been before, so, if you are nearing retirement, our specialist pension financial advisers can help you make the right decisions to maximise the income from your pension pot.

As part of your pension planning journey we will not only review the total value of your retirement savings and how they are invested but,  also, what you personally want to achieve in your retirement.

Don’t worry, if you think you haven’t saved enough, because there are steps we can take to help you bridge the gap!

We will support you and provide expert guidance with retirement advice covering all aspects of personal or company pensions including Flexible Drawdown, Annuities, State Pensions, Additional Voluntary Contributions, Defined Contributions etc.

Reviewing Your Existing Pension Plans

You may have worked in several different jobs throughout your career and amassed a number of different pension plans, with different rules.

We will guide you through the process of finding out what your ‘pension pots’ are worth, how well they are performing and where they are invested but, more importantly, we will help you to understand what they will provide you in retirement and the type of lifestyle you can expect.

Our specialist pension advisers will work with you to establish what type of pension is right for you, which providers will give you the best return on your investment and how much you can realistically afford to contribute – even considering whether it is suitable to combine all your pension schemes in to one single retirement strategy.
